Drown Foundation Gift Enables AppleCare Warranty for Students

"When Katelyn Fields walked into the Matador bookstore on July 11, she had no idea her purchase would be a milestone in CSUN’s ongoing mission to reduce the cost and increase the quality of learning materials for students. Fields, an athletic training major who plans on graduating in 2015, was the first student to buy an Apple iPad as a part of the myCSUNtablet initiative, a new program that allows students to gain immediate access to e-books and other online learning tools for selected classes. As a result, students will enjoy more cost-efficient access to their course materials through a portable, creative and easy-to-use device, available right at their fingertips.

As a part of her purchase, Fields also received a free AppleCare+ extended warranty, made available by a $50,000 grant from the Joseph Drown Foundation, whose partnership with the university spans 25 years. The grant will allow the first 500 students who are enrolled in a myCSUNtablet course and who purchase their iPad at the Matador bookstore to receive AppleCare+ at no charge."
